This type of salt production was a low-cost technology that was known and used in shallow coastal regions throughout Southeast Asia.
Let the sea water flowed in the fields at high tide. Over a period of sunny days, the water would evaporate and leave the white salt on the surface. Hundred of workers started collecting the salt, to avoid the deadly heat during daytime, the salt makers in Ninh Hoa, most were women, had to start working since 3:00AM. Every one would transport the average of 1,5 tons of salt from the field up to dyke! Salt making was the most popular career in Ninh Hoa, the middle coast of Vietnam.
About Ly Hoang Long
Since my childhood, I was fascinated by colors and images, then I began my first career as a graphic designer. Life passed smoothly until 1993, when I saw some of my friend’s photos, which made me realize that I could paint with light by a camera, so I bought my first SLR (Pentax SP II) and started shooting. In 1995 I built up my darkroom and got stuck there for eight years, I didn’t even realize that I almost quit my design job. It is the story of how a photo hobbyist transforms to a freelance photographer.
In my opinion, the technique and concept of photography might be changed from time to time, but the only thing will always exist and will never change is our optimistic vision. Life is always looked much better while being seen via the view finder, so, just press the button and let the images tell the stories. [Official Website]
